The exchange reported earlier this week in this blog between Senator Russ Feingold and Senator Rick Santorum on the Senate floor back in 1996 regarding partial-birth abortion left people speechless. It is bad enough that Feingold is the pro-abortion poster child, but his comments following questioning by Santorum vividly display how an anti-life mentality has no stopping point.
Feingold supports taxpayer abortion funding here and abroad, no parental involvement in abortions for minors, abortion on demand for any reason, partial-birth abortion. For Feingold, where does it end? Apparently not even after birth. Shocking, but it shouldn’t be surprising. The baby killed in a partial-birth abortion is mere inches from being fully born. If it is acceptable to kill the baby at that point, when the baby’s head is still inside of the mother, why should it matter if the baby is fully born? After all, the whole purpose of the “decision” is to end with a dead baby. Feingold is a true-blue, hard-core proponent of abortion — they don’t come any stronger.
